Did you have to accept licensing TOS when you installed the Cannon software that allows this?
If I were in this position I would try installing the software on a machine with no ethernet connection or wifi hardware. It would be interesting to see how the software reacts to this environment (perhaps it would allow the pictures to be transferred or give you and error as to why not).
yes, and yes. But everything wants to update itself, and indeed that is good. But if that's all that's going on, then it should give me the choice to skip updating, or let me update manually.
